I don't work for "prizes". I work for pay.
From no-spec.com (I really, really recommend you spend some time on that site) - "...a logo in isolation is like lipstick on a pig. It needs to be treated as part of an overall brand identity strategy, not picked off a shelf."
Or, go back to this old WebmasterWorld thread [webmasterworld.com]. Spec work will never be able to address the real issues needed by a client.
Be clear about what you are providing, and make that clear to your clients.
